WHAT TO DO WITH PUFFY EYES?

As simple as you may know don't keep them, get rid of them puffy eyes.

Eyes are organs that detect light and convert it into electro chemical impulses in neurons. The simplest photoreceptors in conscious vision connect light to movement. In higher organisms the eye is a complex optical system which collects light from the surrounding environment, regulates its intensity through a diaphragm, focuses it through an adjustable assembly of lenses to form an image, converts this image into a set of electrical signals, and transmits these signals to the brain through complex neural pathways that connect the eye via the optic nerve to the visual cortex and other areas of the brain.


Pamper your eyes, as stress can make them puffy and look ageing, virtually older than it's actual age.
Protection of eyes and their main- tenance should be given utmost importance by all of us. According to
a recent research, about 22 per cent people suffer from puffy eyes because of stress. They are the indicators of our health condition. Puffy eyes usually make people look more tired and aged.

By asking for the impossible we obtain the best possible.

Sleep well
Give your eyes the much needed rest. Sleep deprivation makes them work overtime and causes bags underneath. This is because all the fats and fluids settle down and accumulate in the area. As the skin underneath the eyes is very thin and fragile, the extra fluid becomes more prominent.

Pamper your eyes
Apply cucumber slices or cool tea bags to your eyes on a regular basis. Tea bags contain tannin that reduces the swelling and discolouration of eye bags, while cucumber soothes the puffiness around the eyes. Keep cool cucumber slices or tea bags in the refrigerator overnight and the next day put them on your eyes.

Eat a balanced diet
Deficiency of Vitamin K or B12 is known to be a major cause of puffy eyes. Include lots of fruits and vegetables in your diet along with plenty of water to get all the vitamins and minerals. Decrease your salt intake.

Quit smoking
Smoking is bad for your health and can also cause under eye circles and puffiness.

Avoid rubbing your eyes
Rubbing on the eyes and eye contours may break the tiny capillaries underneath the skin and lead to more dark circles and puffiness.

Take care of eyes while you sleep
Before going to bed, dampen a soft cotton cloth in cold water and squeeze it to remove excess water. Then put this cloth over your eyes as you sleep.

Take regular breaks
Learn to take regular breaks during work, especially if you are working on computers.

Visit a doctor
If the swelling around the eyelids is 2-3 times more than normal, you should visit a physician immediately.

Good is not good, when better is expected.
